Are We There Yet? - AVAILABLE YEAR-ROUND Gentle Lot, Huge Dock, Covered Deck
average rating of 3.75 based on 4 reviews

Odorous water, hard beds, won't be returning.

  • 1 of 5

First off we loved the dock and the quiet cove. Easy to tie our boat to dock.

The house however, left a lot to be desired. The smell from the water was horrible!! Worse than rotten eggs, from every tap and shower head. Almost unable to brush your teeth to a take a shower, you had to leave door or curtain open for fresh air. It was that bad. The inside of the dishwasher was stained brown from the water, totally unappealing. To use the washer, which was also stained brown, you had to add Borax along with your detergent or your clothes would be stained brown.

The furnishings are a dated, tired collection of mismatched odds and ends. The basement appears to be recently updated, although it doesn't add any value to renters since there is not any comfortable furniture there. In fact in the room that holds the ping pong table, there isn't even a single chair.

Lastly the beds. Rock hard. Miserable sleeping. The mattress pads looked as though they were many years old, threadbare and thin.

It's really a shame, because the bones of the house are good, it would seem the owners are just really careless with the maintainance. We rent every summer at SML, but we will not be returning to Are We There Yet for the above reasons.

Wonderful Escape

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth time back to SML and to Are we there yet? Our family has spent 3 Christmas holidays there and last summer vacation as well. It is so peaceful sitting on the dock. The house is well equipped for the entire family and more. The wineries are only a short distance away and the priceless views are right out the back door. There is plenty to do for all ages and we can't wait to go back this summer!
